1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
Select the dough cycle.
Select the dough cycle.
When dough is ready take it out of bread machine and onto a work surface dusted with cornmeal, press, and spread out to about 1/2 inch thick. With a english muffin cutter....hehe... or you can use an empty tuna tin with both ends cut out and washed (of course) cut and place on cookie sheet or tray also sprinkled with cornmeal. I didn't have a cutter or tuna tin, so I ended up using a large mug to cut the muffins. I also made some tiny muffins for a bento.
Let them rest for 20 minutes, I covered mine with a light linen cloth.
On a large flat skillet or griddle on medium heat cook the muffins 5 to 7 minutes on each side. You will see the familiar golden color of english muffins.
I like the way they turned out, not too many "nooks and crannies" (you can find a recipe from Alton Brown on Food Network for ones that has all thoses nooks and crannies if that's the way you like your english muffin)...and I do apologize for my camera...I couldn't get the focus to work, it might be done for good on any close up shot.
They toast up nice and crisp on the outside, soft and tender on the inside...
All in all I was very happy with how easy they were to make and how good they were. The next morning I made egg and cheese sandwiches for all three of us before school and work. (didn't get a photo of that) I will definitely make them again, you won't want to buy pre-made ones again! I want to try english muffin toasting bread next! (I'll let you know)

Kristy, Thanks, you're the best! I have been wanting to bake more, and with your encouragement you have me believing I can do it!
I couldn't resist taking pics of the kids work, I get to see these hanging in the hall every morning when I walk to the cafeteria for my morning breakfast duty! A good way to start the day!
Oooh! I've always wanted to make English muffins. Now you've inspired me :)ReplyDelete
Oh wow, homemade english muffins. That's awesome! Now I need to buy another bread maker for sure. But I'm pretty sure my bread maker money keeps going towards bill too (and gas for my car). Funny how that happens huh? :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing this recipe. It is one I definately want to try soon.
Beautiful muffins! I really love that speciality.ReplyDelete
Delightful! These look so pretty, Lyndsey...very impressed. Love the children's art, too--joyful colors!ReplyDelete

I just always buy them...but I bet the fresh ones are so much better.ReplyDelete
Sassy, yes go for it!ReplyDelete
Katrina, My bread machine is so old, the store I bought it at has closed and I think two other stores has gone in that space since. It has been in storage and I pulled it out and started using the dough cycle. I like it much better for that.
Rosa, it's so special when you can make it at home.
Jenn (Bentobird)- thanks, I love it when I discover goodies that you can easily make at home and have it fresh when you want it! The kids artwork is great, I enjoy it.
Rita, that's great! Can't wait to see yours!
Belinda, thanks, nothing like artwork that makes you smile! :)
Bo -Yeah I did too! and they do taste better fresh. My daughter had to eat one still warm.

K Butterfly - Ha! Trust me it was that easy...of course I use the bread machine because I don't have a stand mixer or dough blade or really the room. The hardest part was finding what to cut them with :D
